Orientation Tip:
Kansas City straddles the Missouri-Kansas state line, sometimes causing travelers to wonder which state they are in. You’re not alone! Here are a few tips to help: If you are west of State Line Road, you are in Kansas. If you are east of it, you are in Missouri. Follow the Missouri River to the north, and if you are west of it, you are in Kansas. East of it, you’re in Missouri.
